This is a 12-discussion, Master’s level course towards understanding the epistemological underpinnings of an Islamic System of Governance (ISG). Based on the Prophetic Madīnian Polity, participants will delve into the concept of Islamic Governance, the application of such a system, its challenges and potentials, beyond the theoretical, and into its operationalisation in the contemporary context.
